Use for a teacher.

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I'm tony , a geography and Eng Lit teacher based in Karachi. The Paint.NET program is fantastic, and I'm experimenting with it for my work.

I'm particularly interested in it's use for geography , where i need it for various map/diagram effects to be printed out as worksheets.

I've found the arrows plug-in to be useful; are there ways to use the program for 3D modelling landscapes and landforms?

If I wish to show processes on a photo, is there a way to make curved arrows?

These are just a couple of questions. I'm on holiday here in Karachi, so i have time to work on this before next term.

Thanks.

I am not sure if it is posible to make 3D landforms but for curved lines you could just use the line tool, bend it with the control points and then use it twice more for the arrowhead. It doesn't give such a perfect arrowhead but its a simple solution.

D3z's way of making curved arrows is correct, but there is a much easier way. With the line tool, just set the style to have a arrowhead at the end; see image below.

Hello, Tony F. A program (freeware) to use for 3D modelling of landscapes would have to be Terragen, allowing for a paintbrush style of lowering and rasing the gound level of a landscape then generating it. I hope that helps somewhat.

I also think there's a good chance you could make some land-mass looking type of thing with The Gravity Plugin, from MadJik.

You can make top view land masses by using the Alpha Displacement and/or Displacement map plugins we have.

Search for them, see which one you like better.
